Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am new here, and would like to introduce myself and my car. I just bought a 1972 H code mustang that was cloned to a Boss 351, It still has the 2bbl cleveland, but I have a set of 4 bbl heads and intake on the way. Its yellow w/black strips, and my plan is to finish the cloning process. It will be a driver, not a show car. A lot of work has been done already, but I still have a lot to go. It needs all new suspension and steering components, and a thorough brake job before its ready to hit the streets. I just finished cleaning up the cowl area and installing a new wiper trans and arms, so front suspension is next. Thanks for reading, looking forward to learning a lot here.......Omie01:cool:

Welcome from snow buried Massachusetts. I just put the snow shovel away after 3 hours of shoveling and now it's snowing again.

Going fast is fun but life is short so slow down and enjoy the ride :D Frank

Don't forget the upgrade of the R-code or H.O. leaf springs however what I am looking into for my q-r code modded 72 convertible is the old corvette 'monolith' leaf springs for that 'Gymkana' suspension feel.
